View Full Version : Robot Assisted Test

Just got home from Dr. Harris office where he and his staff performed a test to make sure I was a good candidate. Thankfully I am! :)

the worst part about it was the needle to numb the skull (ugh that sucked!) I am a crybaby for things like that :D

next was that I felt nauseous, this could of been cause I kind of just ate on the drive up there and having my head pumped full of chemicals, the stress of being in the chair, and the sound of the robot, being face down in the chair.

the machine is pretty fast...(i assume) when they got it all configured and ready. it literally did 4-5 punches in about 10 secs. (possibly less)

I am going to put on some pics real soon.

Keep us posted on your results. Dr. Harris is two blocks from my house so I may have to pay him a visit in the future if the results are good.

Thank you for posting the pictures , out of interest what does Dr Harris consider to be the requirements for a suitable candidate, based upon a `test` , is it the usual donor suitability, charactaristics, density, etc or is there another way to determine suitability for a robotic procedure ?

ejj - for me the test was to see if the robot would be able extract my hair follicle. i am of mixed decent (African American) and they have a curvature to their hair follicle that the robot might not be able to extract or recognize.
